Homeschooling, Autism Style

Parents all over the world are suddenly homeschooling. Are you one of them? If you have children on the autism spectrum, the prospect may seem even more daunting. Homeschooling, Autism Style: Reset for Success will give you what you need to step up. The first thing to do is to START: Schedule Theme-based Activities at Regular Times. You know how important having a visual schedule is for your kids. For all kids, really, but some need the anchor of predictability, so having a visual schedule is important. This book also gives you a HAMMOCK: it’s not just a reminder to relax and not over-stress about academics. It also stands for the kinds of activities to include in your homeschooling schedule, activities that speak to Heart, Action, Mind, Music, Outdoors, Chores, and Kitchen. You’ll find varied and fun activities to create teachable moments. You’ll also meet three fictional characters you may recognize from your own family: Distractible Dory, Hyper-focused Hermione, and Creative Calvin. Learn how personalizing a homeschooling experience works for each of them.

Homeschooling, Autism Style: Reset for Success is written by a mother-daughter team. Wendela is an autism consultant, author, and speaker. Siobhan, also a writer, grew up in an autism-majority family and successfully homeschooled herself for several years. Siobhan’s Strategies appear throughout the book.

Although the book was written primarily for homeschooling families with children on the autism spectrum, the tips and tools are equally effective for your kids with ADHD, sensory integration or processing problems, learning difficulties, and even for typically-developing children. Whoever you are, and wherever you are on your homeschooling journey, you will find something here for your family.
